We started the day at Pascagoula, Mississippi, catching a single CSX out the window of the hotel in torrential rain before going off to explore, and quickly find, the Mississippi Export Rail. We were lucky enough to catch it on the causeway near the company's shops in Moss Point before proceeding on to the port city of Mobile Alabama to check out another shortline, the Alabama Export, where we found two G&W units switching and a single pre-G&W painted unit elusively switching in a spot we simply couldn't shoot.

Home of the Mississippi Export Rail shops just north of Pascagoula, there is some almost street-running and an easily viewed curved causeway.
We caught the Mississippi Export on the causeway at Moss Point heading south. Handheld shot.

We gave short chase to the Mississippi Export as it headed south to the interchange. We were heading east, not south, and had to break off after this one.
Mobile is the home of the Alabama Export and a busy set of yards at its large port.
One of several trains to be switching within a half-mile of each other on three different lines, we watched a lone NS unit working for a few minutes.
